In honour of the women who died 30 years ago at the Ecole Polytechnique, and to raise awareness of a possible threat of mass violence against women, we are hosting a panel discussion focusing on the “Involuntary Celebate” or “Incel” movement. The deadly Toronto Van attack recently brought this phenomenon to the forefront. What is this movement? Who is involved? And what can we do to prevent this new form of hate crime and promote healthy communities?
